To support our customers, we also provide commercial XRF analysis, the manufacture of new reference materials and the implementation of proficiency tests. Apart from the use of our products in connection with X-ray fluorescence analysis, our customers require an increasing amount of support in the practical application of these methods. For this reason, we offer customers the opportunity for complete application development including introduction to onsite methodology in the customer laboratory. In the past, these services were mainly requested by the cement and extractive industries. We now however, offer these services to all users of XRF – worldwide. Training courses including the theoretical fundamentals of XRF technolog and practical applications are also offered.

A special philosophy and common values are the basis for the continued success of our company:
Competent - Quality-Conscious - Fair
We profit from proximity to our customers and long-term partnerships around the world. Fair cooperation and good interpersonal relationships form the core for business success – in the company and beyond. As an international company, it is our goal not only to satisfy our customers but also to inspire them.
It is very important for us to make a positive contribution to environmental protection with our products and services. We support electromobility with our electric car and an electric outlet for e-cars mounted on the outside wall. We see this as the beginning for sustainable, climate-neutral and environmentally conscious growth.
During construction of our main building, the efficient use of resources was our focus. In accordance with this, we use a solar system that covers 50% or our energy needs.
However, our geothermal heating is truly special: The XRF instruments in our laboratory generate heat during analysis of the samples. We use this to heat our offices, thus saving energy in the colder months.
One of our fundamental company values is the obligation to act responsibly. In addition to local institutions and clubs, we support the ROTARY club with the project “Deckel” (Lid) against polio. The goal of the project is to eradicate the disease polio all over the world. To do this, our employees collect the lids from plastic bottles; when the amount is sufficient, they can then be exchanged for polio vaccines.
We are committed to the further development of our employees and promote numerous training courses so that our customers can continue to expect innovative and excellent performance into the future.
Fresh fruit and drinks are available every day for the well-being of our employees. In addition, we promote their health and strength with voluntary fitness studio memberships, because healthy, capable employees are a prerequisite for a successful company.
To strengthen the company cohesion, company events, such as the summer festival, eating “Weckmänner” (bread shaped like a gingerbread man) together, sport events, a “Stammtisch” (regular meetings in a pub), etc., take place on a regular basis.
We see it as a company responsibility to create apprenticeships so that we can provide young people with the possibility of learning the different professions available in our company.
Innovation and visionary thinking ensure the unceasing development of our company and has made us to who we are today: a successful company with steady growth.
